The Black Tower, White Tower, Graft's Bastion, and the Catacombs are located in an area that is barricaded by a stone wall on one side and a small stream at the foot of the hill on another. This pathway is quieter and less crowded than the hustle and bustle of the Council Square, and it's also greatly shaded if you want some recluse from the sun. There is quite a bit of trek (just short) to go up the Black Tower, so it's best to visit this when it's not raining unless you have great trekking shoes. But when the weather is good, it's a quiet walk and a change of pace in the middle of your exploration. This tower last functioned as a watchtower in 1756, during the plague. Do note that when you reach the tower, you cannot enter it and there is only one bench which is quite frequented by locals. Nevertheless, it is still a great view from up there.
